Assymbly Wing Insertion Order Question by Tony Verhulst
I have seen many ship's assembly procedures that dictate the "non" forked spar be inserted first, then the forked spar. This seems counter intuitive (to me), and must be for a reason. Anyone know what that reason is? The owner didn't read the flight manual. I know the owner (LS4-b) and...

Pegase (Pegasus) 101A....opinions? by Gary Evans
Good glider, performance and value. Wing flex provides a smooth ride. Centrair is still in business and parts are available. The only down side to me was with the CG tow hook which needs a fast start to gain rudder control. At 00:42 07 October 2003, David Mesh wrote: Half a share in a Pegase...

History of Contest Scoring by Bill Feldbaumer
Recent discussions about contest scoring have shown that it might be beneficial to review the history of contest scoring in the U.S. Here is a very brief overview. The first U.S. National Soaring Championship was held at Elmira, New York, seventy-three years ago. Three tasks were used:...

"Pan turbulence" by Martin Gregorie
Some time back I saw a magazine article about something mysterious called "pan turbulence" that bit airliners in clear air, often somewhere in the middle of the USA. Could this have been plain old rotor by any chance? I was reminded to ask this by the message about the "Rodeo In The Sky" TV...

Dittel radio Q by ken ward
I have one of the older rectangular box Dittels. They slide into a tray which mounts to the panel. To secure the radio box to the tray, there's a screw which pivots a little aluminum tab into a locking position. My aluminum tab is stripped out. Where can I get a replacement? I guess I could...

New fun racing format by Kirk Stant
This past weekend the Arizona Soaring Association tried a new fun racing format, and it was a blast! A little background: The ASA runs a weekend racing series from April to September, with a weekend race just about every third weekend. Between races, the usual gang of suspects usually get...

Gravity launch by Mark James Boyd
I'm wondering if anyone regularly rolls gliders down a cliff for launch. I was thinking that a suitable slope off the edge of a cliff would work just as well as any tow/winch/auto/bungee/rotax. And if there is reliable lift nearby, you can come back and land. I know this is commonly done with...

WAX ? by JJ Sinclair
I'm new to this sport and have a few questions about waxing my ship. Some say NEVER wax because if you ever get wet, you will come down like a STONE. Others say you MUST wax to ward off the TERRIBLE affects of moisture and UV. I'm confused, can anyone help? One more thing, what kind of wax is BEST...

Did we decide if ballasted pullups are higher???????? by Lars Peder Hansen
OK, here we go, just to exite trolls, believers, non-believers, math fereaks, the lot: Off course wet pullups go higher. In the end, a pullup is conversion from kinetic energy (speed) to potential energy (altitude). Soaring is all about trading one of these for the other. Picture two identical...

Ventus 2CT or 2CM or DG 808b or ASH26E or LS8t by John Mason
I intend to buy a state of the art new glider and I was looking at this choice. My main priority is to enjoy the flying and so I want good performance, nice handling and safe behaviour (no incipient spin tendency to keep me on edge). I am not sure if I will loose a lot of climb performance if I go...

Looking for old movie (chase) by Dr. Elmar Jobs
Hi! I'm looking for a rather old movie (I've seen it about 18 years ago). It's about a glider pilot living in his hangar who is being chased every day by a glider that looks like his own. It has some really good acrobatics in it. But that's almost all I know about this movie. Any ideas? Thanks

MacCready in the Mountains by JJ Sinclair
I fly a lot in the mountains and find MacCready speed-to-fly information, completely worthless. Let me explain; Before crossing a ridge, I will fly slower (below MC), so that I'm assured of making the next ridge. After crossing the ridge, I may fly faster than MacCready. If I set the proper MC...
